2250's are sold as a ''carbine'', but they're considered pistols by Canada's law, so you'd need a RPAL.

One way to find out is to find someone with access to the FRT.

Its restricted in the FRT.

I was able to push a 14.3 grain pellet to just over 600 fps from a 14.5" barrel. Only other mod at the time was a steel breech and poly tube transfer port.
I would call the gravel agency and get a tube on order. You may want to add a backpacker stock . Makes for a decent carabine.


Your carbine had a 14.5" barrel? How many fps do you think were gained with the transfer port mod?
Because I would love an 18" barrel but don't want to go over 500fps...

Getting a 2250 tube gives your front hand something better to grip, vs the stock 2240 tube, correct?

Now I have 22xx mods back on my brain!

I'm thinking:

* 2240, 18" barrel, and 2289 shoulder stock from D&L

* Multi-shot steel breach & a metal barrel band from BNM

* 2250 tube...

Would this be under 500fps? or get a 14" barrel?

Yeah, definitely the 2250 tube will even out the handling of the longer barrel. I've kept trying to image the longer barrel on my 2240 and having the longth barrel length with the short main tube, there is nothing really for the left hand (I'm right handed) to really hold other that a few inches of the 2240 main tube. Adding a longer barrel to my 1322 isn't as extreme since the main tube is longer and there is a hold for the left hand.
Anyways, been thought provoking for me.

14",18",24" doesn't matter. . . You can keep any of those barrel lengths sub500; you just have to tune accordingly. . . .
In which case, the tube(40,50,60) is purely aesthetic. . .

A 24" equipped gun tuned sub 500, can make for a very impressive shot count out of a single cart. . . Pretty darned quiet too. . . Waaay quieter, than an out of the box 2240. . .

All you need is persistence and a Chrony. . . .

That's not a chrony, it's a set of lights to put in top of a chrony.

Edgun has a nice little chrony, something tubular and a red digital display available in metres and feet per second. Unfortunately I cant find anywhere selling it here. Perhaps that one is worth searching for. Don't know the price, but it looks accurate and tiny which is kind of cool. And it doesn't depend on just the right ambient light, unlike the Shooting Chrony.

Its a matter of how you want it to look. If you get lucky and get an accurate barrel, they both perform the same. On c o2 you might get a few fps more with the 24" but not a lot. I have four crosman barrels. The 24" one is extremely accurate, as is the 18" .177 and one of the 18" .22 barrels, but a 14" .22 I have is crap.


My 24" .177 cal. Crosman Custom Shop 2400kt is a shooter..I use AA or JSB 10g pellets.

38 yard shot using my Bushnell Elite ao 6-24x40 mildot scope..Had this Crosman chamfered and reblued..Never did like the finish on these guns very well. I also pinned the valve ( not the Disco way ) but the set screws are hidden by the breech and grip frame..

Got another Custom Shop 2400kt but this one is black and brass inspired as you can see..It sports a LW .177 barrel..Sadly, all my toys are in my mother country, the Philippines, but they are under lock and key, lol!..I am now in the US, btw.

This is my rat gun and its optics is a Burris Fastfire.."Pickle" is a Weirauch but most often I use MWSS all delrin silencers..

Hi, Trickster! Yeah, I left all them goodies in the Phils.. I should have brought with me at least my mounts and lasers. Had them bought here in the US and cozy cuz handcarried them for me. Dang, I know of no airgunner w/in my periphery (small city in New Mexico, USA) so I am into powderburners right now.

See ya!

Yes, what are the limits to 2240 tinkering? With an appropriate length barrel to make it PAL rated i.e. not too short so as to avoid RPAL hassle, what sort of power, fps, accuracy, range etc can be achieved?
